Harsent, D (2011) In The Locked Room. In: Edinburgh International Festival, Edinburgh, UK, 30 August 2012. [Performance]
|Event Location:||Edinburgh, UK|
An opera. In the Locked Room trades off a story by Thomas Hardy though changes much in the course of re-interpreting Hardy’s account of obsessive and irrational love. Hardy’s heroine, Ella, is married to a gunsmith; it is, in intellectual, cultural and spiritual terms, a morganatic marriage. While the couple are holidaying, Ella discovers that a locked room in the house they have rented is permanently let to a poet, though he rarely visits. The locked room becomes, as does the poet, an idée fixe for Ella.
